Firefighter Training Car Extraction

Red Deer Emergency Services personnel are trained to rescue people from many different situations, including extractions from personal vehicles, heavy equipment, buses and many other types of machinery. These training scenarios are important for RDES to learn how to lift, cut, disassemble and rescue in a variety of conditions. However, these training exercises require hard-to-find equipment. This is where you come in! RDES are seeking donations from the community for the following vehicles/equipment:

  • Grain augers
  • Snow blowers
  • Highway rigs and trailers (box or liquid)
  • Cement trucks
  • Graders
  • Forklifts
  • Tractors
  • Buses
  • RVs or travel trailers

All donated items will not be returned, as items are destroyed throughout the course of the training exercise. However, The City does send them to be recycled after they are no longer useable for training. 

If you have an item to donate, please contact the Training Branch at to arrange for delivery/pick-up.
